....a gorgeous, rustic (super heavy) music stand..... thanks to Sandy, at The Shabby Cottage, who answered my call for help, following my music stand post last week, and sent me over to Ebay. I motored on over there and promptly purchased a music stand, an umbrella stand and a gorgeous French weather-vane, which all arrived yesterday .....and all had to be assembled immediately last night ... even the weather-vane... in the dark..... in the back yard. Oh they are all very gorgeous.
A brainwave followed the installation.....I am going to frame some of my violin music (complete with old pencilled in fingerings and dynamics), and some classical music covers, and hang a set of them in the hall. I might even get them professionally framed and bypass Ikea! Heaven forbid! What do you think?
PS This post accompanied by my all time favourite Vivaldi Violin Concerto.... for old times sake.
